De.Ma.Cuisine's picture
Tempeh is used instead of ground beef to make a yummy take on nachos! Eat them while watching your favorite game or movie!

  Greek yogurt 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Tortilla chips 1 Bag (1 kg)

  Ears of corn 1 Medium (Uncooked, with kernals cut off the cob)

Directions

Instructions:
1. Heat pan, add oil. Crumble tempeh into pan and cook with seasonings, and all veggies except corn and tomatoes. Cook about 5 minutes, over medium heat.
2. (If using the oven, pre-heat to 350F.) Add beans. Reduce to medium-low heat. Cook about 5 minutes.
3. On a baking sheet spread chips in a single layer. Top with tempeh mixture and cheese. Bake at 350F for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted (I used the toaster oven).
4. Remove from (toaster) oven and top with corn and tomatoes. Serve with Greek yogurt and salsa for dipping!

Story
I ate these for lunch and dinner yesterday. I couldn’t let them go to waste after I’d filmed and it was what we were having with the game. I didn’t complain. Um, I may also be having the leftovers for lunch today… balanced diet anyone? Actually, this particular version of nachos is not to shabby for ya. So, I’ll just be sure to have something else for dinner and maybe wait on the next plate of nachos until a few weeks from now.
